GSA-4163B DVD-video at 8x

Hello all,
I have an LG GSA4163B DVD recorder with A105 firmware. I use Taio Yuden DVD-Rs (8x) media. The problem is that, when I write a Video DVD at 8x (using Nero no DVD player plays it properly (sometimes it plays, sometimes it hangs the player, it skips, etc.). I tried it on Sony and Philips DVD players. When writing at 4x it plays fine.

Is this a media problem or a recorder problem (or both?). Any workarounds? I am very newbie so please forgive my ignorance. Any help would be mostly appreciated.

Update Nero first.

Meaning I have to switch to Nero 7 or just the latest from 6.x.x.x branch will do?
Is this a known issue?

Just update to the latest version of 6.6. Have you tried DVD+R media with betsetting set to DVD ROM ? That is the most compatible for stand alone players.

No, is just better than v7.

Hey, Weige no need to be harsh.

When using Nero do you have the registry patch to show the actual burn speed?

I’m just wondering whether you have DMA fully enabled on both the burner & HD(s). If not enabled you could burn successfully at 4x but might have issues at 8x.

BTW Nero is fine & updating will probably not change the situation.
